Robin Nõgisto

“Training Rainbows”

10.03 - 17.03

For several years now, ROBIN NÕGISTO has been catching the eye of art lovers with his large-format and vibrant colors.

Few young artists are as quick to recognize a personalised handwriting as has happened to Robin. Works that seem somewhat psychedelic often play around a single or entire ensemble of figures in which the circumstances have been rendered absurd. Be it a cow playing drums; a scuba diver drinking fish under water, or a fish gnawing at smoke from a rabbit’s pipe.
Although many of the details in his works cannot be encountered in real life, their two-plane rendering has used the highest amount of detail through thousands of adjacent but contouring brush strokes. All of this brings together today’s work a’la Hieronymus Bosch, which the viewer can forget for a long time.

Robin Nõgisto graduated from the Estonian Academy of Arts in 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in painting as a student of the legendary Jaan Toomik, and his works have been exhibited at annual exhibitions curated by the Artists’ Union since 2014. With his personal style, the artist was also nominated for the Akzonobel Art Prize in 2018.
